Installations within 3 weeks
We are working towards reducing our collective reliance on fossil fuels, with affordable, reliable and dependable solar and battery installations.
We want to help homeowners and businesses become more efficient in their energy consumption. This means educating people on the real world values of the Sun’s energy, and making it accessible to as many people as possible.
We have an environmental conscience too, which is why we are passionate about what we do.
Our aim is to provide a service that helps our customers and clients to benefit from the abundance of energy provided by the Sun, as well as reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
It’s rare to be able to offer a service that has so many benefits to everyone, and by offering what we do, Green Home People hopes to contribute to reducing everyone’s carbon footprint without compromising on the things we enjoy in our day to day lives.
We will survey, and design the best system for your home based on your budget, power requirement and environmental needs, including panels, inverters, batteries and smart management systems.
We offer a price match guarantee on all like for like system quotes. All it takes is a quick phone call to check. We can even often specify a revised system that offers the same or better performance and guarantees for less.
With a few simple questions we can tell you how much energy you will be able to generate; how much of it you can realistically use yourself, and how much you will likely feed back into the grid and how grid independent you can be over the course of a year.
Installing a Solar PV & battery system is a big investment and you need to know what the real world benefits are going to be before committing to an installation. We can help you understand how your Solar PV system will generate usable electricity for you, how your battery can help time-shift your energy usage to keep bills low, and how long it could take for your installation to pay for itself.
We will guarantee a price match on any like for like quote.
We’ll also review your design / quote and provide our feedback on what we would do differently – (if anything) – we’ll always praise a good design when we see one!) including where you could save money without potentially losing any performance or reliability.
The rules are simple – there’s no VAT on either the materials OR the installation of materials if supplied and installed together.
If you have materials supplied only, then you’ll need to pay 20% VAT.
In other words:
“The Zero rating for energy saving materials involves the supply/installation of energy saving goods. If solar panels are only supplied then the liability will be 20% but if they are supplied and installed then the liability would be zero rated for both the goods and the installation of the goods.”
Energy-saving materials and heating equipment (VAT Notice 708/6) Part 2.1
From 1 April 2022 until 31 March 2027, the zero rate applies to the installation of certain specified energy-saving materials (read paragraph 2.12) in, or in the curtilage of, residential accommodation (read paragraph 2.23) in Great Britain.
From 1 May 2023 until 31 March 2027, the zero rate applies to the installation of certain specified energy-saving materials (read paragraph 2.12) in, or in the curtilage of, residential accommodation (read paragraph 2.23) in Northern Ireland.
2.11 Energy-saving materials covered by the reduced rate
Subject to one of the social policy conditions being satisfied or the 60% threshold not being exceeded, the following energy-saving materials when installed in residential accommodation in Great Britain between 1 October 2019 and 31 March 2022, and Northern Ireland between 1 October 2019 and 30 April 2023 were reduced-rated:
2.12 Energy-saving materials covered by the zero rate
The zero rate applies to the installation of the following energy-saving materials in residential accommodation in Great Britain between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2027, and in Northern Ireland from 1 May 2023 and 31 March 2027:
These energy-saving materials were included in the reduced rate prior to 1 October 2019 and will continue to be included in the reduced rate from 1 April 2027 onwards.
2.16 Solar panels
Solar panels include all systems that are installed in, or on the site of, a building and that are:
If you need more information on what is or isn’t included then please let us know.
All households are different, and estimates on savings will vary according to the type of property, the solar panel specification and of course how much energy you use.
As part of our survey we can advise you on the best system for your needs and how much money you could potentially save.
We’ll take into account:
There are more factors to consider, and we’ll let you know all the details as part of our design
Many people aren’t aware that the energy generated by solar panels needs to be used as it is generated, otherwise it will flow back into the national grid – unless you have a battery storage system to charge.
There are a host of options when it comes to battery storage, and batteries can be used for a surprising number of different needs.
Under the smart export guarantee (SEG) tariff, any excess energy you create and do not use can be sold back to the grid. Be warned though, all but a few providers offer poor tariff rates (typically around £0.05 per KWh).
You will need to have MCS approval to benefit from the SEG tariff, and we can help you to ensure you meet the relevant criteria.
Electric vehicle owners can use the energy generated by their solar panels to charge their electric car, this can be even more beneficial with the addition of a battery where energy captured during the day can be transferred to your car overnight.
The general rule is that it is much more financially beneficial to use the energy you generate than sell it back to the grid, so charging an EV is an ideal means of ensuring that as little of your harvested energy goes to waste as possible.
Remember – the energy you generate from your Solar panels is free – unlike the cost of a charging station or petrol forecourt!
It’s true, by switching your energy usage to solar you massively reduce your carbon footprint.
Solar power can account for over 50% of your annual household electricity consumption – and any of the electricity you feed back into the grid is 100% renewable.
Combined with a heat pump or other electrically powered heating and water system and a suitable battery storage solution, you can become far less grid dependent and therefore more carbon-neutral as a consumer of electricity.
We like to do our bit too – which is why we’re a carbon negative company. Get in touch to learn more.
Well, it’s not quite as simple as that, but once your system is installed, all your energy usage from your own solar panels and battery is effectively free.
So even if energy prices continue to rise, you can be confident the impact of this on your home outgoings will be minimal. You can also take advantage of buying energy during low periods and using it to charge your battery, so you never need to pay the peak premium rates again.
In actual fact one of the biggest reasons to invest in solar is because we know for certain that energy prices will only continue to rise.
And each time they do, the effective amount you save increases, meaning you pay off your solar panel investment faster, the more the energy prices increase.

Home buyers are as energy conscious as you are, and homes with a modern solar energy system, EV charging or renewable heating system are not only likely to command a higher price, but are also likely to be easier to sell quickly.
Prospective buyers will also understand and appreciate the reduced energy costs, and your solar energy performance forecast provided by us can be used as part of your seller’s information pack.
